I never saw any point in turnups (or turnips, for that matter).

They're for transporting notes around the classroom when old Robbo
the maths master goes wandering around as he teaches.

I wore short trousers until, I goove, the third form.

AND had a leather satchel. I always wanted a haversack (sports bags
hadn't been invented in those days), but Mum wouldn't let me have one.
